What we have is 36 degrees for one angle, we also know that the angle of the tree with the ground is 90. 90+36=126, all angles sum up to 180, so 180  126 = 54

It asked about the angle of the rope with the building... Wouldn't it just be also 36 degrees, since the triangles are similar?

i mean, if you look at it as a transversal, wouldn't it be 36?

so ur saying that 36 + 90 + 36 = 180? well it does not.

That's not what we're saying, and yes, it's pretty clear that doesn't add up.
